We had a fantastic lunch in this great restaurant, owned by an experienced chef that has passion for cooking starting from choosing the best ingredients: we had onions with truffle as starter followed by tagliatelle with ossobuco ragu, everything delicious. Definitively the best place in Perugia. No matter in which season you go simply follow the owner suggestion.

Went on a Wednesday night without a reservation and no problem getting a table. The waiter said he didn't speak much English, but he was good at explaining menu items in English. The wine menu looks a little expensive (starting a 22 euro) and there is no house wine listed, but we asked for the house red, which was good... More

I have to say I am not a huge fan of Tuscan and Umbrian cuisine after living in Italy for over two years. I prefer the coastal cuisine, such as Ligurian with light fresh seafood. Just watch what you order, rather less than more. The pasta portion is so huge that you wouldn't have any stomach left for il secondo.... More

I was visiting Perugia on business and this restaurant was recommended to me by a local. It was indeed one of the best meals I ate while in all of Italy. Claudio, the chef, personally came out and greeted all the patrons. The food was truly spectacular! I hope to return one day! Thanks! Lynne B.

What a place, what service, what food. The service was best ever, the staff was great, so polite and friendly. Got some extras before, with the food and after. I recommend this restaurant for everyone for an experience of great italian evening in GREAT familyrun restaurant. You don't have to find it anywhere else. You won't be disappointed!

I can only confirm what many others have already said. This is an excellent and extremely well managed restaurant - in fact the best we found on our 2 week road trip from Lecce via Matera, Perugia, Siena, and Elba, to Civitavecchia. After the complimentary plate of crudités, excellent pasta starters and salad we could barely even start on the... More

Having been to La Taverna many times for the past ten years (my brother and I did university in Perugia), I was pleasantly impressed by the fact that the standard of service, cuisine, and atmosphere continued to operate at a very high standard. Recently, I visited La Taverna with my girlfriend after eight years of leaving Perugia, and we had... More

We were lucky to find ourselves in Perugia during truffle season and found the best place to gorge on them at the Taverna. Thanks to the wonderful chef, Claudio, we were treated to both black and white truffles in our pasta dish and in our meat dish. It was the best meal we had during our January trip to Italy.... More

Had such a fabulous time at La Taverna! The food was exquisite, the service was beyond wonderful and the chef came out and talked with us at the table. His name is Claudio, and I can honestly say that this is the most friendly and tasty (especially if you love truffles) ristorante that we have been to since arriving in... More
